State of the Arts NYC's Lineup Hails Radical Breakthroughs, Movements, & Personalities

As our mild summer begins to end and we ease into fall, State of the Arts NYC has organized a lineup that captures the importance of pioneering change in American and beyond.

Starting this Friday, Lois Weber will be discussed by silent film historian Joe Yranski. Representing Film Forum and their series on this pioneering female filmmaker, Weber will be honored for her work that rivalled her contemporaries like DW Griffith. And then supporting NY's upcoming Textile Month, the show has textile artist Sherri Lynn Wood on sculpture, African design specialist Atim Oton discussing prints and Amelia Peck from the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Candace Wheeler and her impact on fabric and interior design.

Throughout the next six weeks, expect to hear Akili Tommasino, Curatorial Assistant at The Museum of Modern Art, New York on Terry Adkins as well as Curatorial Assistant Rujeko Hockley at the Whitney Museum on their new exhibition An Incomplete History of Protest. Artist Nari Ward who is hot right now, will join us on his solo exhibition G.O.A.T., again at Socrates Sculpture Park with Curator Jess Wilcox. The team for the new Opera Philadelphia production, We Shall Not Be Moved that is coming to the Apollo Theater in October will talk to State of the Arts NYC about this new work and its American premiere. The show is thrilled to have returning Bill T. Jones, the director of the opera along with Marc Bamuthi Joseph and Daniel Roumain.

Lynn Novick, co-director of the Vietnam War documentary with Ken Burns and Sarah Botsetin will tell us about this new film and then we have the makers of the new animated full length animated film Loving Vincent.

Special coverage will be given to fall art fairs like TEFAF, Asia Contemporary Art Week, Ai Weiwei's upcoming exhibition with the Public Art Fund and several film festivals.
